Peter Tosh - 400 years - outtake

Song Rating: 8.83/10

Song lyrics:

400 years (400 years, 400 years. Wo-o-o-o)
And its the same -
The same (wo-o-o-o) philosophy
Ive said its four hundred years;
(400 years, 400 years. Wo-o-o-o, wo-o-o-o)
Look, how long (wo-o-o-o)
And the people they (wo-o-o-o) still cant see
Why do they fight against the poor youth of today?
And without these youths, they would be gone -
All gone astray

Come on, lets make a move:
(make a move, make a move. Wo-o-o-o, wo-o-o-o)
I can (wo-o-o-o) see time (wo-o-o-o) - time has come
And if-a fools dont see

(fools dont see, fools dont see. Wo-o-o-o)
I cant save the youth:
The youth (wo-o-o-o) is gonna be strong
So, wont you come with me;
Ill take you to a land of liberty
Where we can live - live a good, good life
And be free

Look how long: 400 years, (400 years, 400 years) -
Way too long! (wo-o-o-o)
Thats the reason my people (wo-o-o-o) - my people cant see
Said, its four hundred long years - (400 years, 400 years. Wo-o-o-o)
Give me patience (wo-o-o-o) - same philosophy
Its been 400 years, (400 years, 400 years)
Wait so long! Wo-o-o-o, wo-o-o-o
How long? 400 long, long years
